    Hey Anna, remember what this building is called? Write me if you do! Thanks!

    Fancy meeting another alumna from U of T here on VT! Perhaps I should consult Evelyn instead, she's currently studying engineering at the downtown campus.

    Robarts Library

    If you're staying for a month or so & love to read, ROBARTS LIBRARY is one place you've to be a member of. The main library for U of T students it houses a huge collection of books, including those of East Asian Studies.

    Best Library in the world (it's my personal opinion, & you've to be a student to get in!). The 13 storeys & well ventilated library with many study desks & rooms provide ample space to read & sleep (when you're tired, of course!). Those were the days...Tip for those who still have access: The 8th floor East Asian Department has huge collection of Chinese novels!

    The University's library system includes over 50 separate libraries containing well over 4 milion volumes! Could be more now since it increases by about 200,000 works each year!

    This is my school! U of T actually consists of 3 different campuses: Scarborough campus, Erindale campus in Mississauga, and the main campus, St. George, located downtown. I love the the downtown campus atmosphere and the buildings. The landscaping sucks here but the Victorian Gothic Revival style architecture totally makes up for it. The Bata Shoe Museum and the Royal Ontario Museum are right by the campus. Queen's Park separates the east and west campus (but it's kinda scary to walk through the park at night). It's walking distance to the Entertainment District, and you can see the CN Tower from here.

    Tour the UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO...

    Tour the UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO (U of T) - The campus is fairly large, located right in downtown Toronto, and full of architectural wonders, both old and new.
    City streets run through the middle of campus, giving a very urban feel to university life here. The residence buildings and colleges are quite interesting. The huge Robarts library was designed to look like a peacock (stand on the SW corner of Harbord and St. George). Even though it's in the middle of the city, it's still VERY green.
